This compact 10×12 cherry wood cutting board will fit great in your kitchen and performs well! Cherry is a very warm wood that will darken a bit as it gets more seasoned. This means your cherry wood cutting board is sure to only become richer and more luxurious with age. Cherry also hardens over time leading to a more sturdy and durable board even after years of use.
Every cherry wood cutting board on the Wood Cutting Board Store is 2” thick and is created with sustainability, durability, and function in mind.
Cherry wood ranks between 950 lbf (4,200 N) and 995 lbf (4,430 N) on the Janka hardness scale depending on whether it is black cherry or Brazilian cherry. It is one of the most common woods used in America and is sustainable, durable, and has a natural luster that makes it ideal not only for hardwood flooring, guitars, furniture, and kitchen cabinets but for cutting boards and butcher blocks alike.
On top of this, cherry wood butcher blocks and cutting boards are self-healing as well, meaning that deep grooves from cutting on your board will eventually seal up. This is particularly useful as plastic and cheap wood cutting boards can actually cause foodborne illnesses from food trapped in these deep knife grooves. Without this potential problem being a concern, you can safely cut all of your meats and vegetables on one board without risking bodily harm whatsoever.
Every board we craft is built for longevity and is far more cost-effective based on its lifespan alone when compared to the average cheap and low-quality boards found in department stores across America.
Our 10×12 Cherry Wood Cutting Board is one of the most common sizes found in the average American kitchen and is great for cutting both meat and vegetables. While we don’t recommend putting your cutting board in a dishwasher, it is still easy to clean our wood boards and it is not prone to warping or water damage making cherry an excellent cutting board material option.
All dimensions are approximate sizes. It is best to work with the natural characteristics of the wood first and the dimensions second.
